Genesis 41 - Key

v14

Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved [himself], and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

I was struck by how Joseph was ready for the Lord to change his life in such a big way, so suddenly. There are things I pray and seek the Lord for, that I would say I'm believing Him for, like my business and education, but do I actually expect it to happen? Would I ready if He suddenly answered the prayers and changed my life in such a way?

In Joseph's rags-to-riches moment, he basically shaved, changed his clothes, and went from being a jailbird to being a world ruler. How was he ready? He must have had a good relationship with the Lord to interpret the butler's dream, and then to interpret Pharaoh's dream. Joseph was ready by being faithful to the Lord and walking with the Lord in the place where he was.

Application

I'm seeking the Lord for success in my work and school, so I'll work on having good habits (like getting up on time in the morning) and having my life well organized so I'll be ready for the Lord to move in the ways that I'm believing Him for.
